Mumford & Sons were so popular live at the Eden Project in Cornwall it had fans chomping at the bit for their next UK tour.
Mumford & Sons Tickets – Buy Here
Mumford & Sons have enjoyed quite a year so far. Having achieved the rare feat of appealing to both Radio One and Radio Two listeners at the same time, it ought to be no surprise that the London group have seen a surge in popularity – but to do so on such a grand scale is mightily impressive.
They played an Eden Session at Cornwall’s famous complex of biomes The Eden Project recently in support of indie stalwarts Doves, and after opening with album title track Sigh No More, songs such as The Cave, Little Lion Man and Roll Away Your Stone went down a treat with the crowd. Frontman Marcus Mumford announced to the crowd at one point that it was their first ever show in Cornwall, but one got the feeling that it would not be their last.
The Eden Session only served to whet fans’ appetite for more shows, but luckily the band have just announced some: Mumford & Sons tickets are currently on sale for their headline tour of the UK in October 2010 – as well as their multiple festival appearances. A full list of live dates is below:
